Just a reminder: RNC FAIL stops for no holiday

Someone with the first name "Curly" sees fit to shape the direction of the Republican Party (emphasis mine):

"For this association of members to choose to outsource its leadership would, I believe, be an abdication of our responsibility," Curly Haugland, an RNC member from North Dakota and the former North Dakota Republican Party chairman, wrote in an e-mail to Mr. Steele.

Mr. Haugland called on Mr. Steele to quit the contest for Republican national chairman because he is not an RNC member.

"In my estimation, 168 committed members of the Republican National Committee are a powerful army of qualified advocates for Republican principles; certainly much more threatening to the Democrats than one celebrity spokesman," Mr. Haugland said.

Yeah cowboy, that's been working out really well so far under the leadership of Mike "Who??" Duncan.

Meet the newest entrant to the RNC Chair race

It's South Carolina GOP Chairman Katon Dawson

The only thing I know about him is that he just recently cut off a 12-year membership at a Columbia, SC country club that doesn't admit African-Americans.  But don't worry, he's suddenly decided that he's, like, totally mad about it and stuff.  He's asked them to change their rules. 

I don't want someone belonging to a restricted country club in any GOP leadership position, especially when he'll have to be refuting the policies of the first African-American president.  Which, I guess, means that The Stupid Party will choose him in a landslide.

In not-so-surprising news...

...most of the GOP governors are as screwed up as McCain. 

For real guys, get over yourselves.

P.S. - the interview went well, I think.  (A Congressman-elect saying that he's recommending you to his Chief of Staff is good, right?)

John McCain's very selective honor

Here's Andy McCarthy:

Sen. McCain did not allow a nanosecond to go buy without issuing a sanctimonius, full-throated condemnation of any Republican who dared use Sen. Obama's middle name, mention Jeremiah Wright, or otherwise trash The One.

So where is the vigorous defense of his running-mate?

Good question. 

For more awesome, listen to Mark Levin's Nov. 7 show

Throw their asses out

Is there a reason why John Boehner hasn't been replaced yet?  This election was a  referendum on the GOP leadership's ability to lead and live up to their promises to the public...they failed, miserably.  Time to completely replace the leadership and start anew.

these are my thots let me show you them

I'm going to attempt to somewhat coherently organize my thoughts regarding running for office, particularly as a Republican.  We've been discussing building back up a conservative movement and, as part of that, getting people to run.  Well, it appears there are certain rules than need to be met to do so.  Here's my take on that.  This could get lengthy so I'm moving it below the cut.

I should note, I do not at all agree with these rules, but these are what they seem to be.

Some (hungover) Thoughts on The Day After

Dear America,

Well, yesterday, you made some choices.  Some choices that I don't really agree with.  But that's okay.  You're still my favorite country.  Always will be.  I  promise.

But now, I'd like to take a few of you aside and have a word or two with you...

•The GOP:  Hey, guys, you get to try your hand at being an opposition party again.  Won't that be fun?  The good news is that Congress is going to be run by Dingy Harry and Botox Nan.  The bad news?  You're a bunch of retards.  Oh, and the next time a Presidential election comes around, how's about we don't go for "The Guy Who's Been Waiting in Line the Longest" or "The
Person Who We Think The Media Might Find 'Electable,'" m'kay?  I got behind McCain because he's an honorable man and because he was damn-well better qualified than his opponent, but he wasn't a conservative, and guess what?  Well, you know what, don't you?  God, I hope so.

•The Left/Obamatons:  Wow,  you won!  Congratulations!  Now, prepare to be disappointed.  A lot.  Have you noticed that The One hasn't been talking much about Iraq lately?  That's because he knows that he's not going to be pulling us out of there like he promised you.  We're gonna be there in some capacity for quite some time.  And there's a whole raft of other promises that he made you that he's not going to be able to deliver on, either.  You thought you were getting Teh New Messiah, but you just got a Chicago Ward-Heeler.  Deal with it.

•Moderates/Swing-Voters:  You people had a choice between a centrist Republican who's got a long (probably too long) record of bipartisanship and a well-established career in public service, or an empty suit who promised a lot of airy-fairy platitudes about Hope and Change while voting in lockstep with the Dems and talking about socialism and destroying the coal-based part of our energy infrastructure (way to go, Pennsylvania!) in his more candid moments.  You also handed more control over to Congressional Democrats at the same time.  All I can say about all that is that Buyer's Remorse is a bitch.

•African-Americans:  I know, you never thought you'd see the First Black President within your lifetime, but here he is!  Let's all hope he doesn't fuck things up so badly that you never see another.  Oh, and can we hear a little bit less about "institutionalized racism" now?  No?  Well, it was worth a shot.  And, yeah, I'm probably a racist for bringing it up.

•The MSM:  Fuck you.  You're dead to me.

•President-Elect Obama:  Congrats on your big win.  I haven't yet decided whether or not I'm going to channel your more childish followers and act like they have toward W. over the last seven years ("Not My President," etc.) or if I'm going to rise above and be a bigger man, but you can rest assured that every time you fuck up, I'll be right there.  You've got a big job on your hands, and I hope you keep America safe, but it's my job now to criticize your every mistake.  And when people like me criticize those mistakes, the cries of "RACIST!" are going to wear thin pretty fast.

•Vice President-Elect Biden:  Don't you change a thing.  Stay gold, Pluggyboy.

let the recriminations begin!

Yeah, this circular firing squad is going to be fun.

I blame Putin.  Of course, that's my current default position of blame for everything from breaking my kitchen faucet to my not suddenly waking up 6 feet tall and a perfect size 2.  Putin's fault, all of it. 

So, fellow Morons, who do you blame?

I'd be a very rich man tomorrow...

...if only I'd held on to those shares of Val-U-Rite Industries.  Sigh.  Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get very, very drunk.

(I mean, more so than usual.)
